Air Jordan “Stealth” III (3) Gas Mask

“With the multi-headed, ADHD dripping Gods of Consumerism slowly but surely pushing the old religions out, where do we turn when we lose our faith? With Heaven so far away, are there enough worldly pleasures to drape ourselves in? Is the world coming to an end or are we?  The gas mask protects, not just our…

Air Jordan VIII “Playoff” Gas Mask

Appropriately enough, the 80th sneaker mask I’ve created was made from Air Jordan 8s. This is the first mask I’ve made using the Jordan 8 model and was made using just a single pair of “Playoff” Retros from 2013.  The mask features carved lens frames to imitate the VIII’s midsole while the shoe’s liner overflows…

Air Jordan VI (6) “Black Infrared” Gas Mask

Masks serve a number of functions, possibly more than ever in modern society. They have breathed life into ceremonies and performances since the ancients. A mask can instill fear, disguise a criminal or cover a surgeon’s mouth. Masks not only obscure a physical identity but can also express identities unseen. The sneaker masks I’ve created…

@FreehandProfit creates a classic mask for @MethodMan

Normally new masks are released every 1st & 15th but I got a special piece to share with you today. I started this month with a tribute to Wu Tang Clan, fittingly because September is the 9th month (Wu Tang Clan being made of 9 deadly emcees). Sebastian Bleak and I made it to Rock…

Another restock? No, BRED XIs like you never seen.

Just touched down last night, fresh back from San Antonio – still got some of that stale airplane air in my lungs. Too bad I’ll never be able to wear one of these masks on a plane (Note to self: photo shoot). It was worth it though, San Antonio is a beautiful city yo! I…

Galaxy Zoom Rookies become the newest mask by Freehand Profit

What better way to celebrate my 30th birthday but with a new mask release. Folks who made it out to my solo show ‘Rise of the Undeadstock’ at ROSEWOOD in San Diego got a first hand look at this previously unreleased mask. The mask was commissioned by the infamous @Dubstepslap415, the man behind Sneakerhead Saturday…

If you’re getting too impatient you can see 5…

Nothing quite feeds my eyes the way a great piece of vector art does. (What’s Vector Art?) Mistyk 1 (Brian Tafoya mistyk1design@gmail.com) put together a truly kick ass piece of vector art inspired by the Lebron IV Dunkman mask that I created. I’m truly honored by just how much care and time he clearly spent on…

Guerrilla Art Squadron Redux: Week 7

The original Gorilla G.A.S. mask is close to me, under my skin in fact (tattooed on the inside of my right forearm). But that doesn’t mean there isn’t room for improvement (on the design that is, that tat is the amazing work of BooBoo Negrete). These weeks of Redux have been a great learning process,…

Guerrilla Art Squadron Redux: Week 6

Some of my favorite jobs of the many I’ve had have been working as a dog trainer/walker/caretaker at great dog daycares like Woofs! Dog Training and Cagefree Canine Camp & Rescue. I’ve always been a dog lover but when my dad brought home our first bully breed rescue, Winston Xavier (a pitbull/boxer mix) I gained…

Guerrilla Art Squadron Redux: Week 4

This week the King Tut G.A.S. mask, or as I like to call him “Tutbebombin”, is up for a remix. Good thing to, I loved the idea of Ancient Egyptian gas mask but looking back at the original left me luke warm about the results. This time around I’m much happier with the results. I’m…

Guerrilla Art Squadron Redux: Week 3

The Elephant G.A.S. Mask, which became known as the Hellafant Mask, was the first truly animalistic G.A.S. piece and also the first G.A.S. design to be printed as t-shirts for my clothing line Profit Ink.orporated. I’ve since put the dreams of a clothing line on the back burner, reserving designs and prints for special events/gifts/giveaways…
